Fun on Friday - Giveaway

Hi Friends on Friday! This past week I've had to stay quiet and rest. Rather rough:) I had my LAST surgery a week ago. I'm feeling good despite a chipmunk face. I wasn't sure if I'd be able to talk or eat. I'm not having problems with either one. I find myself wearing purple clothing to match the purple streaks on my chin and neck. 
Some folks would have done lots of hand sewing, but I've been blog hopping, reading and napping. This week was the fabulous blog tour from Quiltmaker Magazine featuring designers and blocks from their Quiltmaker 100 Blocks Vol. 5 issue. There is still time for your to visit the blogs and enter to win prizes and free issues of Vol. 5. 


 Visit Quilty Pleasures Blog for lots of fun and inspiration.  I love studying quilting magazines. Quiltmaker mag is one that I have a yearly subscription. My last issue arrived recently. When I renew my subscription, a free subscription is available to a quilting friend. If you'd like to win this free subscription, leave a comment on this post. I'm having to eat lots of "SOFT" food - foods easily cut with a knife. Suggest foods that I can eat. I have 5 more weeks on soft food. I'm getting bored with soup. I'd like to get this card in the mail on Monday. I'll chose a winner Sunday evening, May 6th. Enjoy your weekend and have a fabulous Friday!

Congratulations to Karmen! Visit her wonderfu blog, A Quilter Awakens

Have you tried eating small pastas or mashed potatoes? Those are both pretty starchy but might be a good alternative to soup. Ice cream, pudding, oatmeal, pancakes, thin sliced lunch meat? Now I'm hungry. Get well soon!

regan said...

Yogurt, mashed potatoes, rice, scrambled eggs or omelets, and of course, chocolate melts in your mouth, so you don't need to chew! Good luck!

When my brother had his jaw wired shut the doctor's suggested baby food. Bro made his own and pureed just about anything you can think of. Fix a cheeseburger and mash it all up. He claimed it was great!

Thanks for the chance to win a subscription.

dortha said...

You could always put some foods that aren't so soft in the food chopper and chop them up so you could eat them. I thank you for the chance to win a one year subscription.

Diane Wild said...

I'm sorry you're going through this. I cannot imagine. Hope things go better for you soon.

Teresa said...

Hope you are feeling better and recovering nicely.

Thanks for sharing all the quilt pictures.

robin said...

I hope you feel better soon. My suggestions are cottage cheese, mashed pears, applesauce, and fruit/veggie smoothies. I make a yummy smoothie with ice chips, 1 whole egg, 1 banana, 4-5 strawberries, 1-2 TBSP. orange juice concentrate, 1/2 cup plain yogurt, and a handful of fresh spinach. I love it, and it's a great way to get good nutrition without even tasting the spinach. Yes, it's green!

Susan said...

OOOHH! I'd love to win the free subscription! So glad you are feeling better! Try some yummy smoothies with lots of healthy ingredients---bananas, spinach, pineapple, flax seed, strawberries, etc. They are so cool, healthy and refreshing!

Brenda said...

Hope you are feeling better. How about pasta, jello, mashed potatoes, soup, pudding, soup, ice cream. See you soon.

A friend of mine had dentures put in about a year ago, and she still cannot chew anything with them, and for her too, it's been hard to find things to eat. She is also sick of soup. She sometimes combines it with mashed potatoes, jello, yoghurt or scrambled eggs, but even that has its limits according to her. Good luck finding things to eat. Would love a subscription on Quiltmaker. Have bought it in the past, but not the last couple of years. Thanks!

Thanks for sharing your renewal offer with a reader. Suggestions: When my father had therapy for swallowing with a licensed "swallow therapist", Diet Sierra Mist was the drink that she selected. He was able to swallow that much better than any other beverage. Oatmeal, soft scrambled eggs, and applesauce were other foods she selected.
